Book Review: Rhyme Time Valentine

Posted on Updated on

Rhyme Time Valentine

Written and Illustrated by Nancy Poydar 
Published August 28, 2002 by Holiday House 
Ages: 6-8, 32 pages 

Ruby loves Valentine’s Day and spends time making the perfect Valentine’s Day card with a special rhyme for her classmates. She lightly teases other students’ cards, since she can make perfect hearts and has already finished. She plans to wear all red on Valentine’s Day. Finally, on Valentine’s Day she bundles up for the cold weather and takes her homemade cards to school. However, the strong wind causes the cards to fly out of the bag. She arrives at school upset, but decides to make Valentine’s Day cards with the supplies in the classroom yet there’s no more red paper. She remembers the candy hearts from her parents and gives them to her classmates. Ruby learns that cards don’t need to be perfect, instead it’s the message that counts.

Rhyme Time Valentine is a sweet book with rhymes. If you’d like to remember making Valentine’s cards and passing them out to mailboxes in class then you’ll enjoy this book.

    You come up with some really cute children’s books. I need to look into some of these for my own grandchildren.
